This is Dr. David

I am sorry you are still tired.

you need an updated cardiac echocardiogram to check on your heart ejection fraction

and to see how much aortic valve reguritation and to see what your ejection fraction is.

if your ejection fraction is low, then this could be causing your fatigue

but other issues can cause fatigue such as anemia or low thyroid hormone levels

have you had a cardiac echocardiogram after your TAVR valve replacement procedure?

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
